Publisher's Summary

Addictive, dangerous, your guiltiest pleasure yet: the thrilling climax to the trilogy. The very place where their passionate love affair began, The Manor, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse's lives.

She has accepted that she'll never tame the fierceness in Jesse, and she doesn't want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she's finally got beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise which lead Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is. He knows too well how to take her to a place beyond ecstasy...but will he also drive her to the brink of despair? It's time for this man to confess.

Includes a bonus scene from Jesse's perspective. Read by Edita Brychta

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "The Dysfuntion Gets Resolved A Bit"

    I LOVED this last book. It was like a whole new world compared to books 1 and 2. Suddenly, there are things actually happening. Not all issues are resolved, that is evident in the first parts of this book, but finally we are moving and progressing forward (with a couple steps backwards here and there). Jesse is finally becoming a little more human and we understand him a little more. He's less exasperating because he's shown more of himself. I think that if books 1 and 2 could have been combined into 1 book, it might have been helpful. I am just glad that I continued to read so I could get here to enjoy Jesse and Ava together. By the way, HOLY CRAP on the things that are revealed in this book. Who knew 1 person could have sooo many secrets?? Some of which I never even saw coming. I think the last book got better as I read as I listened. I gave book one 4 stars, book two 3 stars and book three 5 stars. So, if you are wondering if you should continue after book 1 or even book 2...I say, forge ahead, it is worth it

    Edita Brychta was outstanding with the delivery of the story

    "All 3 books"
    Would you consider the audio edition of This Man Confessed to be better than the print version?

    I love the audible books mainly because it MAKES me listen to every word and not skip bits that I think might be boring or not enhancing the storyline. This way I realise that every word is worth the time to listen. In this book I needed to pay a lot more attention so I am very glad that I listened and not Read this final book in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Jesse especially when you come to realise that he has definite reasons for a lot of his actions, not that I always agree with him. He has some very heavy sigh moments with Ava that have little to do with the hot and heavy bedroom scenes and more to do with the all encompassing love that he has for this woman. I really love his office redecorating.


    Any additional comments?

    Bearing in mind I am talking about all 3 books and not necessarily just this one.I loved and hated all the main characters in this story in equal parts. I was constantly quietly screaming at Jesse and Ava because although they were both well and truly old enough the immaturity in the way they dealt with difficult situations made me want to pull my hair out at times. I couldn't help but think why can't you all be a bit more honest with each other and take a break from the misunderstandings and over reactions for awhile, BUT, with each book the characters grew on me. I nearly didn't buy book 2 because of this but I am so glad I persevered. Although the story was a little slow and repetitive in places early on by book 3 I was well and truly hooked. This is a true love story and I think some of the people that left really negative reviews (esp in the kindle versions) either didn't get or couldn't see the forest for the trees. This is not just about control for controls sake as the story unfolds you get why it had to be like this. It is more a sense of emotional survival for Jesse, and for Ava as she accepts the way things need to be for Jesse to function she comes to love the feeling of safety and cherishing and not be stifled by it. There are compromises all round. I don't get the review referrals to "domestic abuse" I understand emotional abuse but I don't see it here. He may have tried to be all controlling but Ava wasn't having a bar of it. This was by far my favourite book in the series and I loved the extended epilogue. All the various threads of this story were neatly tidied up in the end, some things I just never saw coming, but it didn't feel rushed like other books I've read where there is a lot going on. Overall I give this 4+ stars and I look forward to more from this author. End of.

    "A lovely love story if a little long"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this as part of the series of three books. One has to have some patience with the length but I think that the story and characters were well developed.


    What other book might you compare This Man Confessed to, and why?

    Possibly Sylvia Day's Crossfire series just because of the length and character and story development.


    Which character – as performed by Edita Brychta – was your favourite?

    Ava was my favourite character as performed by a female voice.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    One can not help but be emotionally affected. A lot of incredulity as events unfold. The slow unveiling of Jessie's past in order to understand why he is how he is just touches on one's annoyance even anger to understanding the circumstances to acceptance of him. It was lovely to see his much softer side towards the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I think a male voice would have been preferable although the reader did very well with the voice modulation to differentiate the characters.

    "A brilliant concluding part"
    If you could sum up This Man Confessed in three words, what would they be?

    Heart-stopping, heart-rendering and heart-felt


    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Man Confessed?

    Too many to say really. Like with the first two you think that at last we know all there is to know about The Lord of the manor - but there is always more being revealed.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The epilogue is incredible


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lots but especially when the couple thought they had lost the baby and then found out it was twins. And of course the epilogue


    Any additional comments?

    This isn't a stand alone book- it's a brilliant conclusion to what is one of the best trilogies I have ever come across. Can hardly believe that Jodi Ellen Malpas is a first time author. I liked the narrator as well.
